What is a Embodied Breathwork? A ceremonial workshop connecting you to your own breath, body and roots. Integrating Robyn's training in Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation, she merges this with her experience in other realms, expanded states and rooting practices.  This hour is to give you a chance to have a big sigh and get you back in your body and ready for the day What is Hapé? Hapé is an ancestral medicine of the Amazon Jungle applied via the nose. Hapé is used to silence the busy mind and bring peace and clarity, dropping into the body. It can be used to help you focus on activities - traditionally used before hunting. Used for a variety of physical imbalances such as sinusitis, allergies, asthma, fever, parasites as it cleans the body especially the nasal passages and stomach. What is a Temazcal Sweatlodge? A type of Sweatlodge, a Temazcal is a purification ceremony; for relieving stress, cleansing toxins from the body, releasing negativity and revitalising life force. Especially beneficial for your immune system & balancing mind, body & spirit. As a key part of indigenous medicine, it has been used widely for thousands of years for the treatment & prevention of disease, stress, weight loss, depression, skin conditions, fibromyalgia & more.. The dome itself represents the ‘Womb of the Earth’ as its energy is distinctly nurturing, bringing us closer to our Mother Earth.

Root of the Gods is a community project integrating ancestral earth wisdom into our everyday lives. We support the revival of the ancestral art of living through events, retreats, courses, art and products. We dedicate our life to nurturing relationships with earth wisdom, indigenous teachers and practise the study of bridge keeping - re-building balanced cycles of reciprocal living.



We live & breathe ancestral earth wisdom into the everyday, through authentic cultural experiences; retreats, courses and more… If you want to connect with indigenous ceremonies, build a relationship with the wild, face the uncomfortable and find your old friend're in the right place…
